You may be forgetting the "genetically diverse" part of his statement. Is 100 women (and 100 men) diverse enough? Possible ugly side of this discussion: If someone was bent on ethnic cleansing, limiting who can travel to a new planet would have the same net effect.
Forget about sanitizing our spaceships - it proves very little. Spread life around the galaxy! It is our duty.
A rounding error from zero people live in such temperatures. Not even the inhabited parts of Norway have such a climate. Some parts of Siberia, basically, which were forcibly settled by the USSR.
It does vaguely fit North American weather patterns: 0-100 F is vaguely habitable, below 0 F is unlivably cold, above 100 F is unlivably hot.

A third option: run an extension cord to the neighbour's house and pay them a monthly rate, thereby evening out the connection cost across several neighbours.
Of course I could argue what kind of modern browser doesn't do ajax or webapps? Turning it off is like turning html off.
I use adblock and with malware blocking in addition to flashblock. Noscript reminded me of UAC in Vista when all the apps were XP compatible and required to constant beep for any task before developers started switching to services instead.
However, when scientists publish garbage, they can lose their credibility. You don't get a Nobel Prize for filling sheets of paper.
Same with news outlets - just look at Fox News.
My experience with doctor's offices has been that everything is kept on paper, and they fax things around if they need to transfer the data "electronically"...
Python? You serious? Bye bye one liners with for loops or anything else. I really doubt anyone wants to have pretty code enforced on them for something as simple as iterating through a few numbers one time, ever.
$ python -c 'for x in range(3): print "One"; print "Liner!"'
Perhaps future laser weapons won't be like today's lasers and act more like a projectile but at the speed of light, given the recent progress in making light behave like a liquid or a crystal.
Is there a good site for space battles animations? I used to go to spacebattles.com but they haven't added any content in many years.
How can a developer have a frank discussion about the product's limitations when in a public forum? My feeling is you'd end up having to sanitize comments for public consumption or be self-censoring your real, honest opinions.
What about the trolls who will say "hey this has been filed for X years and still nobody fucking fixes it!?? FAIL!!" Who needs that kind of drama in a bug db.
Yes, open source organizations keep their bug DB public but it is a necessity for them and a different dynamic. Also worth mentioning that security bugs are private even for open source.
How can you be first to market when all your new ideas are available to any competitor via the bug DB?
